Accelerating all outbound traffic from LAN
Posted on 2007-08-03
I'm looking for products that will accelerate LAN traffic to the internet. However, it's not really WAN optimization (in the typical scenerio), since it's not going to a specific endpoint, I just want to speed up all traffic going outbound from our LAN. Basically using a hardware device of some kind to leverage the bandwidth we already have instead of buying more.
I've seen a lot of companies out there for WAN acceleration like Riverbed and Juniper, but their solutions are really expensive and I'm wondering if there are any other ideas out there that are a little more reasonable that are just for all outbound traffic from a LAN.
